Hi, i have a form  that contains a combobox that i have bound to a datasource.  Now, I also dragged another field from the datasource, but I want this field to change whenever the user selects a value from the combobox.  I have the attached code, but it does not seem to work.  Any deas?
Private Sub CustomerRefComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CustomerRefComboBox.SelectedIndexChanged
        Dim Con As New MySqlConnection
        Dim Com As New MySqlCommand
        Dim Da As New MySqlDataAdapter
        Dim Ds As New DataSet
        Dim Dt As New DataTable
        Dim CustomerRef As String
        Dim sql As String

        CustomerRef = CustomerRefComboBox.Text

        sql = "Select * from Customers where Name ='" & CustomerRef & "'"
            Con = GetConnection()
        Try
            Con.Open()
            Com.Connection = Con
            Com.CommandText = sql
            Da.SelectCommand = Com
            Da.Fill(Dt)

          CustomerIDTextBox.Text = Ds.Tables("Customers").Rows(0).Item("CustomerID").ToString()

        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)

I get the error after it executes line 21 : CustomerIDTextbox.Text = Ds.Tables("Customers").Rows(0).Items("CustomerID").ToString

I see it now. You perform a fill directly on your datatable-level, not on dataset-level. (Da.Fill(Dt))

Try this:
CustomerIDTextbox.Text = dt.Rows(0).Items("CustomerID").ToString
